emartell (353) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - MAY 10, 2012
Aroma increible, penetrante. En primera instancia notas citricas y frutales. Ligeras notas a manzana. En cuanto a la apariencia, color dorado con notas pajizas. Alta carbonatación y sedimentos en virtud del azucar añadido antes del embotellado. Espuma esponjosa de amplia duración. Al primer sorbo, se percibe un intenso sabor dulce y gasificación alta. Al paladar las sensaciones dulce predominan, sin embargo, posteriormente, las notas dulces ceden paso a un sabor ligeramente acido, caracteristico de este estilo de cervezas. El final de esta cerveza es amplio, y finalmente se deja sentir ciertos sabores frutales, principalmente a pera y manzana verde, aun que en ningún momento cede completamente el sabor dulce. En general, una cerveza bastante buena y representativa del estilo.

scarletfire65 (1534) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Clear reddish brown pour, minimal head. Aroma of raw grain, parmesan, apples. Tastes of cedar, apples, and wild yeast. Very nice soft sourness, and well balanced. Notes of leather and funk, with a distant lite balsamic vinegar note on the finish

Bottle. Clear garnet with fizzy dissipating head. Smells interesting- a little musty, plus sour apple, plus cotton candy. Sweet and a little tart. Clean and tart and almost crisp. This is my first Faro and I like it overall.

HopTsing (575) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - MAY 5, 2012
From the bottle poured a lovely reddish brew with a white head that deflated rapidly. Aromas of sour and malt. Wonderful flavors of fruit with a little sweet/sour thingy going on. Medium bodied, complex, and tasty.

Scopey (16270) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2012
Bottle from Beers of Europe. It pours deep amber, with a thin off-white head. The nose is pretty damn sweet: stewed apple, sweet plum, raisin, white sugar and a hint of spice. The taste is also pretty damn sweet: stewed apple, pear, raisin, touch of lemon pith, hint of tanginess (reminiscent of vomit), caramel and white sugar, with a very sweet finish. Medium body and low carbonation. Far too sweet and not nearly enough tartness. I can barely get past a few mouth-fulls – drain pour.

WheatKing (1351) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - MAY 1, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Alright I won’t lie, this was the first and only faro I’ve had. Hey we’ve got to start somewhere. One of the most extreme flavours to grace my mouth, and not just talking about beer here. The plums and belgian yeast went REALLY well with the candied sugar, and I will definitely continue buying this. I’ll try as many faros as I can, and plan on updating this review in the future.

queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - APR 30, 2012
Bottle. Sweet tart malt vinegar aroma. Brown with a small head, dirty looking sediment suspended throughout. Sweet malty flavor with an underlying tartness and very slight bitterness. Medium body and carbonation.

3.8
Lowenbrau (4809) - Asturias, SPAIN - APR 30, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2012 375ml bottle. Sweet and malty aromas. Pours light copper with thin white head, quickly disipating. Light body, average carbonation. Tastes sweet and some sourness, some cider hints,with malt flavors on the background. Short astrigent finish. A belgian classic, easy to drink and really enjoyable.
